Storm Barbara to bring unsettled weather to Wirral


Storm Barbara has been named by the Spanish met service and will bring strong winds and heavy rain to parts of Portugal and Spain tomorrow and Wednesday. 

Across the UK Storm Barbara will probably not cause major impacts, but will bring some rain, which could be heavy and some gusty winds through Tuesday.

Winds will gust at over 30 mph and could cause some rough seas at our coasts.

Although not currently expected, there is still the potential for severe gales to affect the extreme south-east of England during this period.

Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Frank Saunders, said; “Tomorrow (Tuesday) a low-pressure system, sperate to Storm Barbara, will cross Ireland and Northern Ireland bringing gale or even severe gale force winds to some exposed parts of the west and South West of the UK.

“As we look ahead to the rest of the week, we are expecting rain or showers for many areas on Wednesday, possibly heavy and blustery in the South East.

“It will be quieter on Thursday but more unsettled from Friday, with spells of wet and windy weather moving in from the west.”
